Now that is just too cool! How is that magnolia to turn? Looks like it takes a finish well. Show us more!

Probably one of the most stable woods I've worked with. Finishes well with friction polish or carnoba wax. Also sands out well. This one was sanded to 600 grit and I was pleased. My wife wants more of these as gifts

Outstanding wood and turning.

I have tried turning many angels and never had one come out looking as nice.

Brilliant idea and very well turned!

Thanks for sharing!

Cherry's not too shabby either...

p

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?
